Razor clams are strictly managed by determining clam population levels and harvest plans are set every year. Before harvesting, check the beach to determine if a beach is open or if there are any health restrictions. You can check if there are any marine toxin level restrictions by calling the Marine Biotoxin
Hotline maintained by the Washington Department of Health at 1-800-562-5632.
Razor clams may be taken by hand, hand-operated shovel, or tube with a minimum outside diameter of 4″ or (4″ x 3″ if elliptical). Each digger must use a separate container, such as a clam net or bag, but may share digging equipment.
This year is a good one for razor clams. The 2020 season is open and will continue into the New Year.
